This home, located at 26 Jewell Court in the Oakland's Montclair neighborhood, glows with light in the early evening as seen here, but most especially during the day when all of its many windows provide the outstanding views that surround it. It offers 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 3 stories on approximately 3451 sf of living space.
Located on a pleasant wooded cul-de-sac, and high in the hills, it is just below the many parks and hiking trails that make the area so desirable. Just down the hill, the popular shops and restaurants of both Montclair Village and Rockridge await. Easy transportation over the hills to Orinda and Lafayette is nearby, as is the trip to downtown Oakland, or the Bay Bridge to San Francisco.
This handsome entryway is both dramatic and inviting, providing an immediate line of sight to the spacious and welcoming living room with its substantial and dramatic central fireplace. Just to the right is a pleasant home office space.
This stunning great room, with its floor to ceiling front windows overlooking the scene below, is both elegant and immediately engaging. Its expansive space offers multiple opportunities for innovative design concepts for gracious living.
The white of the walls, enhanced with warmth of the overhead lighting in the evening, and sunlight in the daytime, combines beautifully with golden color of the hardwood floors.
A different perspective reveals the dining area which can comfortably seat multiple guests for a pleasant evening meal, or act as a buffet table for an afternoon luncheon, allowing guests to move to the outside deck area, or join together for conversation in the living room.
Immediately adjacent to the dining area is the kitchen, which can provide pleasant refreshment to the front room, the dining area, and the spacious outdoor deck.
This kitchen is designed to meet the needs of the most innovative chef. In addition to its generous working space, it provides an spacious view window over the far counter and sink. Amenities include a dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, and built in range/oven, and stone counter.
The island above serves as an ideal working space, but also doubles, when needed, as an eat in kitchen counter. As seen here, the large floor to ceiling sliding glass door encourages family and friends to enjoy the outdoor living area that is provided by the distinctive deck.
This handsome outdoor space is an ideal retreat-no matter what the time of day. Set above the greenery of the gardens, it is a soothing site for sitting and relaxing with a cup of tea and a book, or just as easily, a casual luncheon with friends.
The entire upper level of the home is devoted to a stunning master bedroom complex that displays gracious living at its best. This distinctive bedroom is surrounded by floor to ceiling windows that create the impression of floating in space over the scene below.
The serenity provided by a location on a cul-de-sac, allows one to step outside to this pleasant deck and unwind in the relaxing afternoon sunlight.
Just steps away from the bedroom is this truly exceptional master bathroom. Everything here is perfectly conceived to provide a sparkling ambiance, and a gracious living experience. The far right wall offers a full length mirror to accommodate the generously sized twin sinks, and the glowing overhead lighting. The warmth of the contrasting browns in the rugs and cabinets adds more distinction.
This presence of the gleaming white tub, combined with the spacious walk in stall shower, reveals the thought that has gone into the presentation concept.
Immediately adjacent to the master bathroom is this remarkable walk-in closet with plentiful storage space for clothing, shoes, and whatever else may be required.
Also present in the same space, is this convenient washer/dryer niche that is combined with a small refrigerator alcove.
In addition to all the many extraordinary and desirable elements that make up the master bedroom complex, there is an additional space, seen here, that is currently being used as a mini gym, and provides a large sliding glass door and window, with access to an outside porch.
There are three bedrooms in the home. The second is seen here, and is highlighted with a large view window, and comfortably sized floor space. It has its own en suite bathroom.
The third bedroom is equally pleasant, and, as with the other two, has its own personal en suite bathroom seen below.
It is especially appealing that all three bedrooms have their own private bathroom. This attractive space continues the theme of a generously sized shower and sink combined together under warm overhead lighting.
The lower level of the home is the site of this splendid family room. It is as warm and welcoming as the living room above, and equally flexible in its potential.
An additional asset, and pleasant surprise, is this handsome home office space located just off the front door entrance. It is an ideal spot for both work, and appreciating the daily pleasure of the outside panoramas that are seen through the multiple windows that surround it.
If this outstanding home if of interest to you, I encourage you to call me promptly with your questions and interest. I can be reached at (510) 517-6280. The residence is being offered for sale for $2,100,000.
